Aroma was a little lacking, but this beer made up for it in all the other categories. Small head that laced out nicely. Wonderful brown body that had a great consistancy. Slightly creamy taste that usually doesnt accompant a brown ale, but I liked it very much. The aftertaste and (albeit barbaric) taste from the belches were even wonderful!! Not quite as bitter as some other brown ales I have tried, but delicious none the less.

Impressive brown ale with good flavor. Pick up caramel in the nose with flavors of roasted coffee and cocoa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark brown colour. Light flavour of hops and maybe red berries and some caramel. Taste of roasted malts, some hops and some caramel. Almost a vinous feeling which surprises me for this kind of beer. Although a little watery body. Some dark chocolate is there as well.

It’s been awhile since I’ve had this... and I was at a great Jazz show in NYC, but I believe the beer was good too. Slight metallic taste was hidden by hops and malt. Pretty decent.

Pours deep copper/red. Nice head and decent lace. Nose is complex of chocolate, almonds, caramel, bit of hop acidity, pine. Nice medium-full, creamy body. Tasty, rich and deep malts, caramel, chocolate on the the palate making it a moderatly sweet tasting beer.

Pours a dark purple with a thick brown head. It has a faint aroma of sweet, sugary malt but no discernable hops. The taste is like sugar-water. I could not taste the malt at all really, only sugar. There were also no hops detectable in the taste. Overall, this is a very disappointing beer, and I’d drink Budweiser before buying this beer again.

ToolHead (266) - København, DENMARK - JUL 10, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2005 35.5 cl bottle. Label says 5.9 % abv. Served in Nørrebro Bryghus IPA glass. Chestnut color. Nice, tan head. Delicious, fruity aroma - very well-rounded. The flavor is pleasantly fruity, citrusy hopped, caramely sweet, lightly roasted, and nicely rounded. Superbly balanced. Easily drinkable.
